3CLogic, delivering next generation inbound, outbound and blended cloud-based contact center solutions, today announced it has closed a $4.2 million series B round of funding. Led by Blu Venture Investors, the investment will support the company’s rapid growth to further expand its call center software-as-a-service (SaaS) business offerings. In addition, as part of its commitment to advance service delivery and ensure customer-centric operations, 3CLogic has appointed Robert Killory as Chief Customer Officer (CCO).
3CLogic has been experiencing record growth in deploying its contact center solution on Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) cloud, an innovative distributed approach that unleashes the full power of the cloud to provide unprecedented security, reliability and flexibility. In addition, 3CLogic’s unique Virtual Telephony Application Grid (V-TAG) provides enterprises of all sizes scalability to thousands of seats. With a pure SaaS solution, 3CLogic leverages V-TAG to integrate with a number of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions such as Salesforce.com, Microsoft Dynamics, InfusionSoft, SugarCRM, Zoho, Blackbaud among others.
“As more and more contact centers turn to the cloud, reliability, scalability and security are key decision criteria for business decision makers as well as management and operations staff. That’s where 3CLogic excels,” said Hal Shelton, Member of Blu Venture Investors’ Executive Committee. “3CLogic has built a unique solution, which is highly reliable and one that continues to gain rapid market acceptance and adoption.”
As the new Chief Customer Officer, Killory brings significant contact center and technical experience to 3CLogic where he will focus on developing strategies and executing programs designed to sustain a superior customer experience. Killory joins 3CLogic from Leading Edge Technology Solutions, LLC, a contact center technology firm that provides consulting services and executive guidance for organizations, with a special focus on TouchStar clients. In this role, he focused on open architecture and scalability, while allowing the business and its customers to drive the technological roadmap as opposed to allowing technology to dictate business operations. Utilizing his deep knowledge of contact center operations, he ensured that technology was an enabler of business profitability.
“This injection of capital will support our continued expansion efforts and fuel future growth as the demand from enterprises for cloud-based contact center solutions accelerates,” said Raj Sharma, President and CEO of 3CLogic. “The Blu Venture team are seasoned investors who provide time and knowledge, as well as funding to ensure their entrepreneur partners are successful. 3CLogic is on a strong growth path and the time is right to enlist Killory’s outstanding expertise to ensure that our customers can grow with 3CLogic as their technology partner.”
The investment will be used to enhance 3CLogic’s position as the leading innovator in cloud-based contact center solutions. The funds will allow the company to continue enhancing its proven call center offerings, while growing its professional team to meet customer requirements, allowing them to focus on their day-to-day operations and business growth.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer.
